Galvanized Wire Rope Thimbles
are hot dipped to give them a thicker coating of zinc than the standard zinc plated thimbles for added protection from corrosion. These heavy duty thimbles are great for outside applications where a zinc plating just isn't quite good enough. Our steel thimbles are made to meet or exceed Federal Speification FF-T-276b, Type III.
If you are looking for further corrosion resistance in high moisture environments, try our stainless steel thimbles in type 304
and type 316
. The type 304 is the most common stainless steel while the type 316 contains the added element Molybdenum. For a full inventory of Thimbles
